by Nicholas Barth

The holidays are upon us, so now is the perfect time to start hunting for some great gifts for the video game players in your life. You are likely to know of some mature gamers who enjoy all of the fantastic gaming experiences that the world provides. You will find that there are a wide variety of gifts that would be excellent additions to any adult’s setup. These gifts would even be perfect for yourself to splurge on when it comes to treating yourself this holiday season. Fortunately, we have rounded up some of the best gifts you can get for yourself or the older video game fans in your life that you do not have to worry about when it comes to mature content or price. 

Resident Evil 2 Remake


You can never go wrong with focusing on nostalgia when it comes to getting a more mature gamer a gift during the holidays. This is why the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 2 Remake would be an excellent gift for the older video game fan in your life. They will be able to revisit one of the most popular video games of all time in a thoroughly modern version that brings plenty of new things for players to experience. It will also get them ready for when the Resident Evil 3 Remake releases next year. 

Asus VG278Q Monitor


It is a perfect time of the year to upgrade your own or someone else’s setup with a brand new monitor. This time of year is the ideal time to splurge, so why not give someone or yourself the high-quality piece of equipment known as the Asus VG278Q Monitor that will provide the perfect display option for all of those beautiful graphics. A price point of $268.00 is not too bad and is substantial enough for you to know that you are buying a high-quality product for another individual or yourself. 

HyperX Cloud Alpha Headset


Sometimes the best thing you can do when you are looking to revamp the headset portion of your gaming setup is not to hold any punches and dish out the money necessary for a superb piece of audio equipment. This train of thought would then lead you to the exceptional HyperX Cloud Alpha headset that comes equipped with surround sound, chat mixer, and adjustable bass, which justify its $148.90 price tag. The HyperX Cloud Alpha may be too much of a headset for younger gamers, but it is a perfect choice for adults who are ready to treat themselves or a loved one with one of the best headsets on the market. 

Xbox One Elite Series 2 Controller


Having a top of the line controller is always an essential part of being the best gamer you can be. It would be hard to go more top of the line than the Xbox One Elite Series controller. This controller gives owners an impressive amount of customization options. These options allow them to make the controller perform precisely how they want it to in any gaming situation. 

Puma x Tetris Sneakers


You would likely be surprised to find out how many fans of Tetris, you know, considering the game is one of the most popular in video game history. With many of these fans likely to be older individuals, it would be perfect for giving them a gift like the Puma and Tetris collaboration shoes. These shoes will give your older gamer a great sense of nostalgia while at the same providing them an excellent addition to their clothing selection. You also could not go wrong with getting these Puma Tetris shoes for yourself if you are a fan and are looking for a new pair of kicks to use in your daily adventures.  

Nintendo Switch


Now, you may think that the Nintendo Switch is a video game console geared more towards children. However, the Nintendo Switch can be a perfect gaming gift for all of those more mature players. It is an ideal device for adults of any age to have for all of the travelings that one must do when they are adulting. Not to mention, Nintendo has done a stable job of adding plenty of more mature-rated games onto the library of the Switch for players who would like high-quality gaming experience on the go without having only to play games designed more for the younger generation. 

Mortal Kombat 11


All of us adults know that sometimes it can be beneficial when it comes to reducing stress by jumping into an action-packed game and kicking the crap out of someone after a long day at work. This need to let off some steam is why Mortal Kombat 11 is a great game choice when it comes to being a gift for mature video game fans. It does not get more cathartic than utterly destroying someone in the adrenaline-fueled world of Mortal Kombat 11 and imagining them to be that annoying customer who was being rude when you were working earlier. 

Herman Miller Chair


Unfortunately, getting older results in our bodies not always working in top shape, especially when you spend many hours playing your favorite video games. This need for comfortable and stable support is why a Herman Miller chair is a highly suitable choice for a gamer who is feeling the effects of their years of gaming on their backs. The high level of comfort will help players of any age feel entirely relaxed and stable when they are taking on their next adventure. 

Alienware Area-51M Gaming Laptop


Like we said in our thoughts about the Nintendo Switch above, being an older gamer often means having to sneak some time in to enjoy your favorite video games when you are on the road. However, if you are a hardcore PC gamer who wants to be able to experience the power of PC Gaming on the go, the Alienware Area-51M laptop is what you should be looking for yourself or your loved ones this holiday season. It’s $1,999.99 price tag is justified by the plethora of potent technology that allows you to play games at their highest potential no matter where you are. 

Logitech Brio 4K Webcam


You are likely to come across many older gamers today who are streaming their video game ventures to either become a full-time streamer or just as a hobby. No matter which one they are trying to pursue, the Logitech Brio 4K webcam is something that some splurging on would no doubt help whoever the recipient is. One of the best 4K webcams on the market currently, the Logitech Brio webcam will provide streamers with unmatched quality that is sure to pay dividends when it comes to how viewers perceive your own or someone else’s’ stream.
